I cut the card wider than the EF to give room to stamp the sentiment, after embossing I did some 2nd generation stamping with the music script, but it came out darker than I wanted, and as we crafters can't throw anything away, I salvaged it by giving it a watery coat of gesso, much more subtle!
I used gilding wax on the rose and leaves, although it's difficult to see the soft sheen. The sentiment was stamped with Seedless Preserves Oxide before heat embossing with clear EP.
After thinking Spring is just around the corner, we woke up to a couple of inches of snow this morning, and DD phoned to say she couldn't get out of her village and the next village at the bottom of the hill was cut off too! Our snow is melting as it's been very sunny, so hopefully this is just a blip!!
